Alpine Waste to measure customers’ recycling efforts

Alpine Waste & Recycling has outfitted each of its collection vehicles with smart devices that weigh and record the contents of each customer pick-up. This data is used to provide monthly automated reports to Alpine’s customers detailing the waste diversion percentage and sustainability impact of their recycling efforts. These reports will appear monthly on the back of each customer’s invoice.

“Many customers who recycle do so because they recognize the value of recycling for the environment, the community, and future generations,” said Alpine president John Griffith. “However, until now there has been no accurate way to measure or understand the results of these efforts. Our automated reports will accurately display the quantity of material recycled, the waste diversion percentage, and its impact on the environment for our customers.”

Alpine’s fleet of 60 trucks has been outfitted with this system.
